Baked Pumpkin Donuts

These donuts are wonderful. My kids go nuts when I bring out the donut pan. They especially liked the cinnamon sugar topping.

I found this recipe on Pinterest.

How to Make Baked Pumpkin Donuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray 2 donut pans with cooking spray. Combine the vegetable oil, eggs, sugar, canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and baking powder and beat with mixer until smooth.
  2. Stir in the flour (1 3/4 cups plus 2 tbsp).
  3. Fill the wells of the donut pans about 3/4 full. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until tops spring back to the touch. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the donut pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  4. Place cinnamon and sugar in a storage bag. When the donuts are cooled slightly (warm but not hot) gently shake them in the bag. Eat while still warm!

    This recipe makes about 15 donuts. If you only have 1 donut pan (like me) you will have to bake in batches.
